In the Federal Register of November 23, 1983 (48 FR 53012), FDA issued a final rule classifying manual gastroenterology-urology surgical instrument and accessories into class I under § 876.4730 (48 FR 53012 at 53025). Certain specialized surgical instrumentation for use with urogynecologic surgical mesh was regulated as class I devices under that regulation. In the Federal Register of January 6, 2017 (82 FR 1598), FDA issued a final order reclassifying specialized surgical instrumentation for use with urogynecologic surgical mesh from class I (general controls) exempt from premarket notification to class II (special controls) and subject to premarket notification. As a result of that final reclassification order, FDA is amending the identification at § 876.4730(a) to reflect that specialized surgical instrumentation for use with urogynecologic surgical mesh is now regulated under 21 CFR 884.4910. FDA finds good cause for issuing this amendment as a final rule without notice and comment because this rule only updates the identification of the device under § 876.4730 to reflect changes made in the recently issued final reclassification order for specialized surgical instrumentation for use with urogynecologic surgical mesh (5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B)). In addition, FDA finds good cause for this amendment to become effective on the date of publication of this action. The Administrative Procedure Act allows an effective date less than 30 days after publication as ‘‘provided by the agency for good cause found and published with the rule’’ (5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3)). A delayed effective date is unnecessary in this case because the amendment to § 876.4730 does not impose any new regulatory requirements on affected parties. As a result, affected parties do not need time to prepare before the rule takes effect. Therefore, FDA finds good cause for this amendment to become effective on the date of publication of this action.

Gastroenterology-Urology Devices; Manual Gastroenterology-Urology 
Surgical Instruments and Accessories

AGENCY: Food and Drug Administration, HHS.

ACTION: Final rule; technical amendment.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is amending the 
identification of manual gastroenterology-urology surgical instruments 
and accessories to reflect that the device does not include specialized 
surgical instrumentation for use with urogyencologic surgical mesh 
specifically intended for use as an aid in the insertion, placement, 
fixation, or anchoring of surgical mesh during urogynecologic 
procedures (``specialized surgical instrumentation for use with 
urogynecologic surgical mesh''). These amendments are being made to 
reflect changes made in the recently issued final reclassification 
order for specialized surgical instrumentation for use with 
urogynecologic surgical mesh.

DATES: This rule is effective March 1, 2017.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Sharon Andrews, Center for Devices and 
Radiological Health, 10903 New Hampshire Ave., Bldg. 66, Rm. G110, 
Silver Spring, MD 20993, 301-796-6529, Sharon.Andrews@fda.hhs.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: FDA is amending Sec.  876.4730 (21 CFR 
876.4730, Manual gastroenterology-urology surgical instrument and 
accessories), by adding language to the identification of the device to 
reflect that specialized surgical instrumentation for use with 
urogynecologic surgical mesh is no longer regulated under Sec.  
876.4730.
    In the Federal Register of November 23, 1983 (48 FR 53012), FDA 
issued a final rule classifying manual gastroenterology-urology 
surgical instrument and accessories into class I under Sec.  876.4730 
(48 FR 53012 at 53025). Certain specialized surgical instrumentation 
for use with urogynecologic surgical mesh was regulated as class I 
devices under that regulation. In the Federal Register of January 6, 
2017 (82 FR 1598), FDA issued a final order reclassifying specialized 
surgical instrumentation for use with urogynecologic surgical mesh from 
class I (general controls) exempt from premarket notification to class 
II (special controls) and subject to premarket notification. As a 
result of that final reclassification order, FDA is amending the 
identification at Sec.  876.4730(a) to reflect that specialized 
surgical instrumentation for use with urogynecologic surgical mesh is 
now regulated under 21 CFR 884.4910.
    FDA finds good cause for issuing this amendment as a final rule 
without notice and comment because this rule only updates the 
identification of the device under Sec.  876.4730 to reflect changes 
made in the recently issued final reclassification order for 
specialized surgical instrumentation for use with urogynecologic 
surgical mesh (5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B)). In addition, FDA finds good cause 
for this amendment to become effective on the date of publication of 
this action. The Administrative Procedure Act allows an effective date 
less than 30 days after publication as ``provided by the agency for 
good cause found and published with the rule'' (5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3)). A 
delayed effective date is unnecessary in this case because the 
amendment to Sec.  876.4730 does not impose any new regulatory 
requirements on affected parties. As a result, affected parties do not 
need time to prepare before the rule takes effect. Therefore, FDA finds 
good cause for this amendment to become effective on the date of 
publication of this action.
